2018/07/06 EUMETSAT "Ocean Colour Bright Pixel Correction" study started

The EUMETSAT study "Ocean Colour Bright Pixel Correction", lead by SOLVO had kicked off in late June. The "Bright Pixel correction" consists in decoupling the atmospheric and oceanic components in the red and near infrared bands, in order to apply a standard atmospheric correction scheme, which requires that this decoupling be done. The purpose of this project is to develop a dedicated Bright Pixel Correction for OLCI.

HYGEOS will prototype the coupled ocean-atmosphere algorithm, developed by SOLVO, and will process the diagnostic dataset while HZG will perform an independent validation.
